    Default prove a point

    Hi

    When somebody proves a point, does it mean he wants to provide some proofs that something was or wasn't etc.?

    Thanks

    When somebody proves a point he establishes the truth of his argument.

    He doesn't just want to, he does. There is a point (a belief/way of thinking/theory) and he proves it (='shows that it's right').
